New thread.


JUDIE said...

Thank you, Steve. Wishing you a lovely sunshiny day.

Have hollered at the others.

Hoda said...

Thank you STEVE for the new thread.
Thank you JUDIE for the call over.

Mema Jo said...

Woah! Way to go Judie...

And it isn't even a Wednesday, Hoda ♥

Steve thank you so much for the fresh thread - I'm sure it will be filled in due time. Five more days and you of course know who will be celebrating another year gone and a new one starting. Thanks for taking care of all us

Hunter will be just fine, I think. He has decided that he might get bored since we are visiting two scientists. I assured him that they have other interests.

stronghunter said...

Thanks for the new thread, Steve.

Must put out peanuts for the squirrels.

Hummingbird wars are taking place in my yard, too. In fact, one showed up yesterday as we were battling the wasps. Almost like it was asking if we needed some help with the pesky critters. I have had no problems with the wasp sting, and we seem to have gotten rid of them. I will be checking, though.

stronghunter said...

Love the way a hummer will hover right in front of you as if it wants to have a conversation, then just zip away.

Lori said...

Good afternoon all!

Beautiful, cool day.

STEVE, thank you for the new thread.

JUDIE, congrats on the new feather!

Did SHARON leave a post with what the doctor said yesterday? I missed it if she did, or CRS!

JudyE said...

checking email so I can get email when I get home

paula eagleholic said...

Hoda texted Sharon and she said the results came back normal...other than that, no other news on Shar.

JudyE said...

Had a hot but nice day out on the boat with Jordyn at Winter
She wanted to come home to take a nap
I don't know what the poor kids is gonna do next week when she is in
school and don't get naps I usually keep her busy but she didn't want to
stay but wanted to come home so we did

the boat ride we saw about 20 dolphin about 7 times while going out and coming in Saw 3 small babies
The net pull that they did WOW we got a Flounder and he was big got pic and two huge about 80yrs old conch shells A scorpion fish, a grass fish and several other didn't remember the names One fish had the face like sea horse and looked like seaweed

so funny they are getting the dolphins ready for the new movie Dolphin tale they have hanging props over the tanks like movie cameras so they get use to it Looks like it doesn't bother them They may remember from the last movies set

JudyE said...

The biologst was amazed at the many species that we got in the net pull So cool and also a sting ray and a fish that uses electric to stun fish don't remember name either not a eel but a fish of sorts
and to find out that I never knew that It was in the WWI that the inter coastal waterway was made for the ships and is only 3-6feet deep depends on the tide you could walk across it when the tide is down

Mema Jo said...

Preparing dinner for Jenny & hubby
Michael is on his way home from OC with his daughter and her family.

This evening we will attend Mass

Lori said...

Thanks PAULA for the SHARON repeat. Don't know how I missed it, but thank you! Grateful for the good news.

Lori said...

JUDYE, you have a productive and exciting wonder Jordyn wants a nap! :)

JO, enjoy your family time tonight.

LOLLY, did you already leave, or is that tomorrow? Have a great time with the boys. I know you will. Post some pictures, too, please.

MARGY, what time does your plane leave tomorrow? Safe travels if I don't see you before you leave.

SANDI, this is a busy week for you, too. Hope you're having fun.

JUDIE, are you all ready to go back to school?

RoRo is feeling much better today. He's been chewing on a rubber bone for the past hour and seems to really be enjoying himself.

Did 3 chapters and required online homework today! YAY.

JudyE said...

Getting ready to head to Angie for dinner Got her up at 4 little sleepy head she is watching a movie I bought her Winx from the Nickelodeon channel she like it Me not so much LOL Of course I am not a kid I like Disney movies better LOL

JudyE said...

good girl on your reading LORI
we are so proud of you I wish I had the courage to do something like that when I was a little younger I always wanted to be a nurse but never did any thing about it

Sandi said...

Hi all - great morning on the tennis court and then a beautiful day on the beach. Madeline met a friend in the ocean and promptly invited her for dinner - one more plate at the table! =)

Lolly, glad to hear that Jack is feeling better in time to enjoy those boys!!

Later! Hmmm, no box to check - guess I'll need to post this first!

Sandi said...

Yup, now I have a box to check! Bye!

Hoda said...

Wonderful bike ride today.
It is in the 80's so not oppressively hot.

Feeling good

Feeling a need to reflect.


PA Nana said...

Jeopardy is over for tonight. It's the teachers championship.

Sandi, sorry your open door policy is enlarging the seating at your table. Just hope everyone is enjoying their time.

Lori, nice to hear you completed the homework assignment. I remember having to crack the whip when mine were in school.

I see Jufie is also an escape artist.

Hoda, glad to hear your temps are moderating. It is nice and cool here and I am enjoying it. A bit cool in the morning but it warms up nicely.

It's Thursday! Tomorrow is Friday for those still in the workforce.

Off to get my pjs on. Will check back later.

Lori said...

HODA, hope you're okay...and you're reflecting on what I hope was a great day for you.

DIANN, sounds so nice, going to put your pj's on. Think I will, too.

Kate is still at work. Don't know how that girl does it! She truly puts in more hours than anyone I know.

SANDI, hope you're having a great time with the family and all the dogs...wait, did this family bring a dog?

PAULA, tomorrow is FRIDAY - we're all dying to hear your news that you got the job - if that's what's meant to be. Prayers for what you want to happen.

MARGY leaves for Germany tomorrow!

SHIRLEY are you getting ready for your trip. You guys leave Saturday, right?

Well, I had a little time, so I read another chapter in the Anatomy & Physiology book...then I looked at the website to glimpse the homework. There's four homework assignments for EACH chapter! I've already read six chapters so I had better get crackin'!

Love you all. Have a great night. SED...and AOYP.

HEY, where has GLO been lately? Did I miss something???

Hoda said...



Very complex.

JUDIE said...

Jufie aka Houdini is skulking near the outside basement door. Sandperson has barracaded Jufie inside. I anticipate some rucus later tonight.

Lori, all good wishes for RoRo and remember your blog family, Kate, and your mom and dad will be a wondrous support and NO I ABSOLUTELY AM NOT READY/WANTING TO GO BACK TO SCHOO.

JudyE, glad you had such a wonderful day with Jordan.

Margy, just in case, bon voyage and I wish you the most amazing vacation/family visit ever.

Sandi, Jo, JudyE glad you've had a nice night with family.

JUDIE said...

Um, school.

As predicted, a rucus has begun in the basement. Oh good grief, Sandperson has just raced up the stairs and down the hall to the closet. Hear frantic packing of sleepy dust in a satchel. Oh,no. Now I hear heavy steps coming up the stairs. Another rucus has begun inside the hall closet. Oh, doors being slammed shut. Sound of feet stomping down the hall. Front door slamming. Whew! Sandperson has made an early departure. Jufie is smirking and lurking.

Restful sleep for all.

Lynne2 said...

evening all...

Judy, sound and looks (saw pics on FB) like a good time was had by all today!

Hoda, I know there are things weighing heavily on your mind and I hope your bike ride and reflection helped. Prayers for an end to the violence in Egypt and for the safety of your loved ones there.

Lynne2 said...

Jo, mass today for the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin? I remember some of my Catholic teachings! Hope the family has had a wonderful evening!

Shirley Lori Paula...WWF is acting stupid again. GRRRR!

Good times going on at Camp Hawkwood! Glad Jack is feeling better today!

Margy must be a whirling dervish getting all of the last minute details taken care of before the BIG TRIP tomorrow!

Sandi...sounds like a nice day for you, too, especially the beach part!

Uh, SHARON. You come on here, get everyone wound up over your most recent health concern and ask for prayers and then you don't show back up to inform us?? We have to go LOOKING for information? SHAME ON YOU. I'll be alerting the Evil Jufie about this....LOL!

JudyE said...

JudyE said...

Hoda said...

Thank you LYNNE.

It broke my heart!

JudyE said...

HODA I must have missed the FB post being I haven't been home most of the day ?????

Hoda said...

My sister commented in Arabic under the post I put last Sunday about kayaking.
It is all good. We straightened it out.
Not good to compare.

God Bless Us All.

Lolly said...

Good evening! We have had a good day. Picked the boys up and even saw Laurel at her house as she came home for lunch. We came to our home for our lunch.

Tie dying went well, though we did run out of dye for poor Jack. The boys loved being creative. They sit for a day, then I wash and dry them. So, I will post pictures tomorrow night.

I am on as the boys are in bed. After dinner we tried playing games outside, but first the ladder ball ladder broke. Plastic got brittle. Then we were playing bocce and it got dark.

Tomorrow we go to the water park. Sat we mow and then go to the movies as well as get the trailer, We leave Sunday for Austin.

Hoda said...

Good night

God Bless Us All

Safe travels MARGY.

stronghunter said...

Good evening . . .

My goodness, Judie has a crowd at her place, what with the sandperson, the evil Jufie, Darth, and two cats. She will have her hands full controlling the household.

Been organizing things today. Tomorrow, I will pack my suitcase.

stronghunter said...

Yes, safe travels, Margy. May you have many happy adventures.

Lolly said...

When is Margy leaving?

stronghunter said...

I thought it was tomorrow?? Not entirely sure.

stronghunter said...

I am ready to go upstairs for the night.

SED to everyone. I will be putting stuff in the suitcase tomorrow.

Hoda said...

MARGY leaves tomorrow LOLLY.

Safe travels on your trip too SHIRLEY.
I think you leave on Saturday. Am I right?

Blessed Be.

Mema Jo said...

My bedtime has past me by. I was on FB looking at all Christine's beach vacation pictures. They had a marvelous time from the looks of things.

Margy will be gone the 16th thru 25th
Shirley and family members will leave the 17th - lots of traveling going on..... Lolly also will be on the road again!

I hitting the road back to bed
I ♥ US ♥♥

Lolly said...

Time for me to shower and get comfy. Jack has been fine all day. He is going to stay home tomorrow. Water park is not his idea of fun. I will take a book and find a shady spot. Will wear my suit and get wet to stay cool. However, it was in the low 70's this morning and the high was in the 80's. Nice!!

Night all! SED!!

Lolly said...

Safe travels and have fun...Margy and Shirley!!!

PA Nana said...

I'm late, I'm late.... Want to say Bon voyage to all our travelers this weekend to Germany, Colorado and Austin. May you all havea wonderful time and pictures please.

JudyE , I understand why Jorydn wanted a nap. I was tired just reading the itinerary. Hope you can sleep tonight.

Sleep well my friends and may God bless. Goodnight!

paula eagleholic said...

Safe travels to Margy, Shirley and Lolly and Jack!

Glad to hear Jack is feeling better!

Heading to Paradise tomorrow, with my brother, coming home Monday. Have not heard on the job yet. Keeping my fingers crossed!

SED, love and hugs to all ♥

Sandi said...

Good Friday morning my eagle friends! No picture on the cam page - just a blue screen.

59 degrees here in Bethany this morning - what a strange summer! More rain than normal, several stretches of cool weather.

Since the windows were open last night, we could hear the great horned owls talking outside. Lisa(my sister), Madeline, Daisy (their dog) and I went out for a night walk with flashlights trying to find one in a tree - no luck, but good fun!

Madeline and Claire (Madeline's new friend from the beach) are both entering middle school this year and are nervous about being able to open their combination locks on their lockers. Found an old one in a gym bag and they spent an hour last night practicing and racing one another to see who could open it the fastest. They were so happy!!

Margy's trip begins today - have a WONDERFUL time, Margy!!!!

Shirley, when do you leave for CO??

Taking Madeline, Michael, and Claire to hit some tennis balls this morning since I'm not scheduled to play, then working at the library book sale for a few hours this afternoon.

Make it a great day everyone!

Janet said...

Good morning ! Its FRIDAY! Man, this week has gone F A S T !!!!

MAGPIE; leaving today? safe and blessed travels. lots of pix pls. :)

It was a good day yesterday; just busy. Work; fully booked. Ice skating. Olivia is learning a spin called a scratch spin, looks so cool. She is really doing well.

I have befriend, or rather have been friended by one of the ice skating coaches. He is jokinly telling the kids that because I have sat thru his classes (several classes go on at the same time when it is group time), that he will be taking some time off and I will be teaching for him. LOL> yeah, he's lost his mind. Nice young man.

Need to get a move on I suppose.

Glad RORO had a restful night. Hopeing he recovers quickly and well...

JUDY: sounds like you had quite the adventure with JORDYN. :)

LORI: keep on studying....we are here to encourage you

JUDIE: keep JUFIE in the closet pls. I think she scares some of us...... (trembles)

PANANA: yes, picking up feet would be good, but the hearth that i tripped over was the lenghth of the fireplace and i suppose 8 maybe 9 inches tall? a HUGE slab...i just turned in my chair, took a step, or attempted to and because i never saw the darned thing, splat...there i was. but yes, picking up feet is good advice....step OVER the fireplace hearth, Janet.

JUDY: yes, people who shuffle their feet drive me nuts too.....hate the sound of it.

all right, gotta get a move on. thinking of each of you...light, love, hugs, smiles and healign for ALL in need!

Sandi said...

Made a MOST incredible dessert yesterday with Madeline - she did most of the work.
1 pkg. of choc. chip cookie dough (the kind that breaks apart into 24 squares)
24 oreo cookies
1 box of brownie mix (follow the directions on the box to mix it)

Put 24 cupcake papers in muffin tins.
Put 1 piece of cookie dough in the bottom of each cupcake paper and smoosh it to cover the bottom (I stuck the cookie dough in the microwave on defrost for about a minute to soften it).
Put an oreo on top of the cookie dough.
Cover the oreo with the brownie mix.
Bake at 350 for about 25 minutes

They are to die for!!!

JudyE said...

Hope everyone has an exceptional day, with lots of love, light, smiles and joy in your heart!

stronghunter said...

Good morning . . .

Packing day. I think I still haven't entirely adjusted to the fact that packing is not as big a deal as it was when I had to do it for a family of six. Only have to take care of myself. Even after all the years . . .

magpie said...

Good Morning...
